Why do I feel like the keys on my keyboard change places whenever I change my IDE?

Whenever I switch from Eclipse to Vim, I need to spend like 30 min getting use to the "new" key arrangement and to stop hitting "z" instead of "shift".

    Different muscle memory? As in: you actually hold your hand in different positions on each IDE, and it takes a while for you to readjust.
    Why set the same shortcuts on both programs?

    @endor *why no, right? Its what i do, my vim directional keys are in the same area but the "i" is used for up an "h" is used for insert so that its the same muscle memory as with the arrow keys.
